Janis Ian was catapulted into de spotlight in 1966 at the age of fifteen, when her soul-wrenching song ‘Society’s child’ became a hit. An intimate portrait of an interracial relationship, ‘Society’s child’ climbed the charts despite the fact that many radio stations across the country refused to play it because of its controversial subject matter. But this was only the beginning of a long and illustrious career. In this fascinating memoir of her mor than forty years in the music business, Ian chronicles how she did drugs with Jimi Hendrix, went shopping for Grammy clothes with Janis Joplin, and sang with Mel Tormé -all the while never ceasing to create unforgettable music. In 1975, Ian’s legendary ‘At seventeen’ earned two Grammy awards and five nominations. Her next two albums brought her worldwide platinum hits and fame that stretched from Japan to Holland. But after seven albums in as many years, she made a conscious decision to walk away from the often grueling music business. During this period, she struggled through a difficult marriage that ended with her then husband’s attempt to destroy her, and a sudden illness that very nearly cost her her life. The hiatus from music lasted for close to a decade until, in 1993, Ian returned with the release of the Grammy-nominated ‘Breaking silence’. Now, as she moves gracefully into her fifth decade as a recording artist and writer, Ian continues to draw large audiences around the globe. In ‘Society’s child’, Janis Ianprovides a relentlessl hones account of the successes and failures, and the hopes and dreams of an extraordinary life.
